About the workshop
One month, one essay!
Work one-on-one with Amy, award-winning author and essayist, on getting that personal essay as good as you can get it. Have you written a book in another genre, and now your agent or editor wants you to have a perfect essay to place? Or maybe you've just always wanted to write an essay but have never gotten past the notes stage. We'll go from rough draft to finished essay, and we'll probably even have fun doing it. Mentee receives: - Two 1-hour phone calls or Zooms with Amy - Two rounds of notes on your essay draft (up to 6000 words) - Weekly email check-in with writing exercises and readings
